This pousada is rustic yet wonderful - the combination of a little village-style compound with well built and designed reception, dining area and bar facing the sea, spacious kite center, spa and bungalows. It's an incredible place to stay, chill out and kite surf. Our bungalow was great, it was well built with nice small details, it had a lot of room for us to move about also in the bathroom and closet area, a small balcony with hammocks to relax in, and most importantly, the bed was very comfortable. The amenities provided were nice and crafted with care. The food was very good with a specially curated dinner menu every night (except for Monday) and incredible breakfast spread with a variety of cooked items, juices, cakes, fresh breads, and fruits to start your day. It is the perfect location for kite surfers, guests are given a locker area for gear, use of the compressor and big washing area for kites. The Atins Kite Boarding school there is helpful and friendly with knowledge instructors. The sea is just in front of the resort and kiting there is amazing. The resort is also located such that one could stroll outside to other cafes or restaurants in the evening without renting a buggy. We loved the warm hospitality that Hajira, the manager, extended to us. She personally made sure that her guests were comfortable and happy and her special touches made our stay even more memorable. Wish we could have stayed longer! Obrigada Hajira!

The hotel is situated on the beach (one of the few in Atins) and near a kitesurf school. The construction is well done in wood and you feel far away from the city. The shower is even half outside/half inside. The restaurant and breakfast were also very good with a number of different options. Things the hotel could improve going forward (given the price of the room): - In the room we didn't have soap to wash our hands + no body lotion and no hairdryer. - We understand that we need to be cautious of the environment but the second day they left the wet towels on the side - could at least hang them. However those details are quite negligible compared to the quality of the hotel / service, and we highly recommend you to stay there!

Great hotel with wonderful bungalows close to the beach, delicious breakfast and amazing crew from the kitchen to the reception desk. Alexa, Agira and Gaby will take care of you! Here you can quickly disconnect from all the problems and fast recharge your batteries. Wi-Fi is available, but after few days you are not going to use it. Doesn’t matter if you want to learn kite surf, stand up paddle, ride horses thru the dunes or just lay down on the beach, this place is perfect for you.

Fabulous hotel in the middle of nowhere. What a feeling! Charming and comfortable bungalows in the most beautiful spot of Atins. Challenging spot to kite! Wind every day! And right next to the Lençóis Maranhenses - this immense white dune desert with its sweet water lagoon! A miracle of life!!! Agira and Gabby will make sure your trip is perfect. They are amazing!
